no longer here (Q: So, how come you're reading this ?), 'cos of 'kuntz' like RBNW (old and retarded).

I may check-in every now and then to see if he's (hopefully) died (and NOT gone to heaven) or whether he's still peddling his "Yeah baby" crap ........

He must be deep in your head (which one?) cuz you certainly spend your time obsessing about him. Why bother? What you are writing is ugly. Surely there are at least ten thousand other, better things you could do.

You're right - sometimes the blind man takes your hand, sez: "Can't you see ?" ............ or words to that effect.

He ain't significant enough to get "deep in my head" but it bugs me to see someone who has so little/worthless to say, hogging the 'mic' all the time. And when I say something (that I think is valid), he tells me to go "f*ck myself in the mouth [twice]"). Sorry, I should get out more, get used to trailer-trash of his ilk.

That said, you're right - time to move on: "Comes a times, when the blind man takes your hand, sez: "Don't you see?" " (or words to that effect).

Time to move on - thanks for the nudge.

Dunno about you, but I'm goin' to Goa ........

That is a cool deal. Maybe if someone gets under your skin you can apply highflows' matrix. Those handles you always read, those you sometimes read, and those you ignore. It works for me.

[m] because otherwise I'd have to work

[n] because I'm waiting for the absolute definite determination of which year really WAS the best

[o] the line to the bathroom is shorter than at a real show

[p] the cast of characters is better than Gilligan's Island

[q] it's always fresh and exciting, since everyone here lost their short-term memory ages ago

[r] It's all about the acid. Wait. Did you just say that?

[s] I'm waiting for the season finale, when we finally learn the secret identity of Dark Starz

[t] It's the Matrix, and we're all Jeff Kaplan

[u] I've heard there's a prize for the most posts, and it can't go to prime ministers

[v] I'm waiting for the sequel: The Return of the Wordsmith

[w] If I keep reading and listening and writing and practicing, some day I'll know half as much as LiA. If he gets stuck in a Dark Star tape loop and is out of commission for a decade.

[x] I blame Nietzsche

[y] We all got on this tiny ship, see, and the weather started getting rough. It was supposed to be a three hour tour, a three hour tour ...

[z] because it's just so much like a Dead show: we've heard it all before, it's probably a total waste of time, but once in a while there's a great extended jam. And if not, there's always next time.

This is hysterical, as was Arb's original post ... I was rolling by the time I got to the loss of short-term memory ... at least I think I was ... I sort of forget ...

I couldn't choose an answer, mainly because I don't have the mental capacity (short-term memory?) to scroll back and forth on the screen trying to remember which letter is for which answer. I'm here because I like the Grateful Dead?

Edited - after review, I choose "all of the above" with the exception of the thing about going to India to find a date.

Well [d], because beyond a doubt [h] and [j] too, damn it, along with sundry other reasons unspecified and the fact that I've been much too busy penning effusive encomia for the fetching floozies of Pune. I hope you've been enjoying my work.

A sequel is generally more than four seconds long. Although your work for the floozies of Pune does seem like it might get picked up by HBO.

It's a little known fact that I was nominated Prime Minister BECAUSE Direwolf was King...I hadn't thought about that for years.

Anyone recall WHO did it?

And, I do actually miss the days of skies. Rob too.

He used to greet me every Sunday morning (the 60s), for the one hr rebroadcast of ND games from 8-9 am, with "...so, are you going to play for Irish for me in ten yrs?").
